Utah Phillips

"Soup"

I'm spending my night at a flophouse
I'm spending my days on the street
I'm looking for work but I find none
I wished I had something to eat

Oh, Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Sou-ou-oup
Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Soup

I worked twenty years in a factory
I did everything I was told
They said I was loyal and faithful
But now I am out in the cold

Oh, Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Sou-ou-oup
Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Soup

[spoken interlude]

I saved fifteen bucks with my banker
To buy me a car and a yacht
I went down to draw out my fortune
And this is the answer I got

Oh, Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Sou-ou-oup
Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Soup

I fought in a war for my country
I went out to bleed and to die-ie
I thought that my country would help me
But this was my country's reply

Oh, Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Sou-ou-oup
Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Soup

(Oh) when I die and I get up to Heaven
St. Peter will let me right in
He can tell by the soup I was fed on
I was unable to sin

Oh, Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Sou-ou-oup
Sou-oup, Sou-oup
They gave me a bo-owl of Soup
